1 TLC Vision Corp has not been sued as named defendant in this case due, in whole

or in part, to the automatic stay of 11 U.S.C. \u00a7362 arising out of their Chapter 11 cases pending in the United State Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Plaintiffs presently intend to move the Bankruptcy Court for relief from that stay in order to amend the Complaint in this case to include the parent corporations as named defendants and proceed against them at that time. Currently, though, the automatic stay is in effect and nothing in this Complaint or any other document filed by Plaintiffs is intended or shall be deemed to be an action against the corporate parent debtors, their bankruptcy estates, or their property or property of their estates.
